Goodbye summer… Hello fall! 

Goodbye Summer

Yesterday, we had a plans of going on a post-dinner walk with the kids to celebrate the Autumn Equinox.  Hmm, that didn’t happen.  But we will do it one of these evenings just to see how different things look and feel now that crisp autumn days are ahead – cool and sunny at the same time.

We can feel the shift already as the summer weary sun dips below the horizon earlier and earlier each evening and how the parched earth welcomes a spray of cool rain. 

It’s time to embrace knitting not just for the process but also for the warmth.  Functional and fun all rolled into one – lovely hobby this.  Getting stuck into cool weather knitting is going to be wonderful.  That’s why as soon as I finished my Spring Forward Socks, I cast on for the Spring Beret.  Why I keep choosing patterns that have “boing, boing” in their title, I do not know!  Anyways, here’s what we gals were upto this morning.

The bebe catching up on her reading – all of 4 pages and she actually looked through the pictures this time!

And me with my knitting and some mmm…coffee.

Beret Knitting

Berets promise instant gratification knitting.  Considering that I’m a knitting slow poke, we’ll have to see.

    oooh, the pictures are wonderfully spectacularly gorgeous. do you have a back house we can move into? i cook and everything, i just do not clean very much.

    no really, the pictures are so great. we went with the 50D because we would have to sell an organ to get the mark, right? we did the loyalty trade in and will send out little trust xti back to the factory. i really do love canon.

    what do you shoot with right now….if you say the mark i will build a back house on your land just to be closer. 🙂
    could you imagine knitting and shooting together? it would be so fun.

    Hey, where’s the FO shot of the socks? And yes berets are wonderful quickies!

    Spring is eternal and it’s a perfect balance of the seasons so it’s only nateral to want it to linger, even in your knitting.
